Ruth Chatwin

Ruth takes a client-centred and strength-based approach in working to support people through challenges impacting on their mental and emotional well-being.  These range from adjustment to stressful situations and life events; anxiety and depression; grief and loss; trauma (including complex/attachment traumas) and PTSD. She welcomes working with Personality Disorders and is a trained facilitator of DBT and ACT.

Adopting an open, curious and enquiring style, Ruth seeks to create a safe space in which to understand each person’s unique experience and foster lasting therapeutic change. She draws from a range of psychological theories and techniques to fit with clients’ needs. This includes ‘re-training the brain’ as a neuro-psychotherapist to assist with reducing client distress so they can lead a more fulfilling life.

  • Family violence

  • Victims of crime

  • TAC

  • Maternal and child health services

  • Acute and clinical assessment
